Historical, economic, legal, political and sociological disciplines make up the educational project of the course in Political Sciences. The primary objective of the course is to promote skills and tools to understand and analyze the political, institutional, social, economic and legal dynamics that characterize contemporary society.
The theoretical tools utilised during the course of study are designed for two purposes: a) interpreting the comparison of institutional structures within the European and international framework and b) analysing and understanding public policy implementation processes within the administrative apparatus of the state and of the supranational institutions.
